5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Foreign Public Health professional on February 21, 2011
Format: Paperback
This book has something on everything. Very comprehensive. Written with a slightly liberal, social justice bias, this book is a great introduction to how the Health Care System works in the US, its flaws and recent developments. Knowing very little about the US system beforehand, I now feel I have a solid grounding in the basics, with a knowledge of the higher level issues too. The reference list at the end of each chapter is invaluable. It is worth getting the most recent edition as this 7th Ed has been bang up to date for my purposes, with a LOT of updates on developments under the Obama administration compared to my colleagues 6th edition. I have given only 4 stars rather than 5 as I did find the long sentences a bit too much prose for bedtime reading, I found myself breaking the prose into shorter sentences myself! Nonetheless, the sections are clearly labelled and broken into accessible 1-2 page mini-sections within chapters and the index and contents are very good so I would not say the wordiness should put you off if you are used to reading undergraduate or other academic texts.

I had to buy this book for a class... what a joke! I have worked in healthcare for over 10 years and this book is so off. People are being taught the wrong things and sorry but any book that starts with,” Obama saved healthcare.” is laughable!

Format: Paperback
I don't understand why my professor assigns this horrible book. The authors do not sufficiently explain the legislations. Even worse, there are a TON of subjective statements that are NOT supported by any sources. This book is a piece of GARBAGE. I am so mad :(

Difficult to read and understand some of the content. Part of the reason, I'm sure, was because the class was boring and uninteresting.

As an MPH student, it is critical for us to understand healthcare organization and delivery. This book does a fantastic job! As an added bonus, I have had the pleasure of being taught by Christina herself! I am constantly amazed by her credidentials and the level of knowledge she has acquired over the years.
